Richard Marx Subdues Passenger Who Should’ve Known Better

A bizarre story involving 80s crooner Richard Marx helping restrain a passenger on his flight.

He was right there waiting for this unruly passenger.

Singer Richard Marx helped flight crew restrain a flier freaking out in the skies above east Asia, he and his wife, Daisy Fuentes, said Tuesday.

“On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next row from us got crazy & started attacking the flight attendants & passengers,” Fuentes, 50, wrote on her Instagram page with pictures of the crazy confrontation.

“When he started pushing the female staff and pulling them by the hair @therichardmarx was the first to help subdue him. This went on for FOUR hrs.”

In one of the snaps Fuentes posted, a flight attendant appeared to be pointing a Taser.

“I feel horrible for the abuse the staff had to endure but no one was prepared for this. They never fully got control of him,” according to famed model Fuentes.

“They didn’t know how to use the taser & they didn’t know how to secure the rope around him (he got loose from their rope restraints 3 times).”

On Facebook, Marx, 53, recounted the brouhaha and said it was clear crew aboard Korean Air Flight 480 had no training in dealing with unruly passengers.

“My wife and I are safe but one crew member and two passengers were injured,” he wrote on the social media. “The all female crew was clueless and not trained as to how to restrain this psycho and he was only initially subdued when I and a couple other male passengers intervened. He then later easily broke his restraints and attacked more crew and another passenger.”

The passenger was hauled off the flight in the South Korean capital.

“When we landed in Seoul police boarded the plane,” Marx said. “Heading home to Los Angeles soon but Korean Air should be sanctioned for not knowing how to handle a situation like this without passenger interference.”

Marx also tweeted at least five pictures of the mayhem aboard Korean Air Flight 480.

I’m glad Richard was able to navigate this hazard. I’m sure that must have felt like an endless flight for him.
